Mrs. Besant

Welcome to Mrs. Besant's webpage! I am an art teacher and this is my fourth year at Harvey Austin #97. I am so proud to be a Buffalo Public School teacher!  I have been teaching art for 20 years. I am very excited to start the 2021-2022 school year and see all of your beautiful, smiling faces.


I am looking forward to creating with you again in person and exploring the many methods, materials, and concepts in the BPS art curriculum. Feel free to contact me at with any questions.
